How to Take Advantage of Your Furnaces Efficiency

Despite the fact it’s spring, we might still see more cold temps. It’s still a good time to take a closer glance at your furnace efficiency. We have a few easy ideas for you to wholly receive the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.

  1. Change Your Furnace Filter
    You’ve heard this time and time again, but replacing your furnace’s filter is key. Even ENERGY STAR® advises changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less often, depending on the manufacturer’s instructions. Air can flow more easily through your residence when you have a clean filter. You can experience improved air quality and greater furnace efficiency as well. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will force it to work harder.
  2. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
    If the ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’s more difficult for your system to efficiently circulate air throughout your home. And even though your furnace will be working extra, you still may not be as comfortable as you would expect. If you are wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, ask our professionals at Fleming Heating & Air Conditioning Inc.. We can assist you.
  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To reduce your heating costs, do some research on a programmable thermostat. Why throw away money cooling your home when you aren’t home? You can find wide variety of different programmable thermostats and should have no difficulty finding one that matches your lifestyle needs.
  4. Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
    It’s easy to ignore the benefits of an annual tune-up when your furnace is running as it should. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help increase its lifespan.
  5. Zoned Heating
    If you would like individual control over the temperature of every room in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can help achieve that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help enhance your furnace efficiency and save on heating bills.
